RAID: World War II Comes to PS4 October 10

Posted by on Sep 15, 2017

Here we are! Just a few weeks away from the release of Raid: World War II. The Lion game Lion crew and I are busy working away on the final elements of the game before we ship!

Some years ago I had a sitdown with my former boss, Bo. I wanted to talk to him about Project Tokyo – a game set during World War II, with the DNA of Payday. He asked: “What the hell is Project Tokyo?”, and I said: “It’s a co-op FPS during World War II. Four guys cause mayhem, kill Nazis, steal their gold, all while being tongue-in-cheek with a dark twist.

We got funded, made the game and it’s soon going to be released! A nerve-wracking time right now for sure.

Ghost Recon Wildlands pits you against an entire country’s worth of cartel goons and corrupt security forces, and now there’s a new challenge on the horizon: other players.

First Details: Call of Duty WWII’s Zombies Mode

Posted by on Sep 14, 2017

Ever since 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War, I’ve hugely appreciated the Zombies co-op mode that has evolved into a series staple. With Sledgehammer Games taking the reins for COD: WWII, I’ve been dying to learn how this talented studio will innovate on one of the most popular cooperative shooters in history.

This is an especially important question since some of Sledgehammer’s founding members were responsible for the horror classic Dead Space! So we tossed a batch of questions at COD: WWII’s Zombies lead Jon Horsley, senior director at Sledgehammer Games, to learn what the studio is up to. Read on to get the first nitty-gritty details on COD: WWII’s Zombies mode, straight from Sledgehammer.

Starting a New Life in The Sims 4 on PS4

Posted by on Sep 14, 2017

The last time I played The Sims, I was in high school. That was unnervingly close to 20 years ago, and a lot has changed. But the heart of The Sims 4 remains the same: to build. To tell stories. To celebrate the eccentricities we all have. And to turn our whole world into a game. The Sims 4 continues that long tradition on PS4, and it does so with surprising aplomb.

Almost everything from the PC version appears on PS4. That includes years of DLC, updates, and ghosts. Sim ghosts, but still impressive! For those looking for a content-rich, feature-complete experience, this is it.

New to The Sims? Come prepared to make choices. The Sims 4 encourages experimentation and procrastination in equal measure. Spend hours creating a whole family in game, or building a dream home brick by brick. Micro-manage every bathroom break and block party, or focus on building a career. Make friends, find love, have children, and watch them grow. Everything is on the table.
